For me it was a really nice diversion in Florence. It is a small museum, not crowded at all, right next to the Uffizi Gallery. It contains a lot of historic scientific instruments of all genres, from several hundred years back. It is a truly impressive collection spread over three floors.
But, I had expected more about the life of Galileo, and his importance in the scientific world. Now it is more scientific artefacts connected to science in generally. There is some multimedia explanation in different languages, but lot of the artefacts is unexplained.
At the end is a section with interactive scientific and educational games for children (and adults as well). Still I liked the Museum.
